Small itchy red bumps on my feet and ankles. What is this?

Small itchy red bumps on my feet and ankles. What is this?

It could be...: Athlete's foot. The best otc medication (in my opinion) is lotrimin (clotrimazole) ultra. Dilute vinegar soaks are good as well. Dry the inside of your shoes by placing them up-side down over an air return vent at home overnight. If this doesn't make things better in a couple days, see a podiatrist.

Can you give me advice with itchy small red bumps on tops of feet?

Allergy perhaps: Seems like some sort of an allergic reaction. Find out what's causing it, (socks, shoes, detergent, contact with something, and avoid that. For now hydrocortisone cream might help, but you may need a prescription cortisone cream.

A few things: Without seeing the feet, it could be many things. Perhaps seeing a podiatrist where he/she can see their size, textures, and what symptoms they cause would shed more light to your question. Athlete's foot, psoriasis, shoe irrtation, shave irritation could be possible causes.

I have small red bumps on my feet (80%), and some on my hands, belly, back or legs. They are itchy at first, then they hurt and then dry out.

Dermatologist: I recommend that you consult a dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment. This could be a problem of insect bites such as bed bugs, etc and it would be important to have a specialist diagnose the condition as soon as possible so that whatever treatment you need, even if it's not an insect problem, can be started without much delay.

I have a 2 degree burn on my leg it has peeled I am using silver sulfadiazine 1% and there is small red bumps around the area what should I do?

Stop sulfadiazine: Silvadene (silver sulfadiazine) is indicated for 3 rd degree burns and burns with an eschar not 2nd degree burns. Small red bumps most likely indicate a dermatitis due to allergy to the silvadene (silver sulfadiazine), (silver sulfadiazine) also silvadene (silver sulfadiazine) can cause hyper pigmentation of the skin leaving you with a brown discoloration.

Small, itchy, red bumps that have been appearing on my feet/ankles for over a week now. They're also slightly filled with pus. What could this be?

Fungus Tinea pedis: If the bumps Pop and drain and get hard like callous material and later peel off it most Likely is Acute Vessicular Tinea Pedis. That simply put is a fungal infection or a type of athletes foot. See a podiatrist or dermatologist for best result. You may try over the counter meds but may wish to add Nizoral (ketoconazole) Shampoo 1% OTC. Wash at night don't rinse off pat it dry and in am wash it off.

Seems like: A long time for you not to have gone to a doctor. It could just be a fungus. I don't think I would draw any conclusions about HIV unless you have reason to believe you have HIV in which case you should go and find out if you do.
